Episode 348: Down River Harvest


Down River Harvest from Winterwood Tea Company came to me recently via Kickstarter. The Washington-based tea vendor has a number of different blends — this is an herbal detox blend with lemongrass, gotu kola, rosehips, hibiscus, cinnamon, ginger, ginkgo, orange peel, and raspberry leaf.

Even with all those flavors, the tea is not overwhelmingly fruity or herby. Nothing stands out more than the others, so that makes it perfectly good for hot tea or iced tea. Can’t really speak to the detox properties of this tea (I just had a cup), but the ginkgo and gotu kola did give me a bit of an energy boost. I think it’s worth giving a shot!
